The Department of Psychology is looking to enhance our graduate-level clinical, school, masters, and experimental psychology programs as well as our on-campus Psychological Services Center. Your support will make a significant impact on the education and training of future psychologists by fostering research, improving access to resources, and addressing critical mental health needs within our community.
Clinical Psychology Program (Leslie Robinson, Director). Clinical psychology graduate training equips students with the expertise to conduct psychological research, evaluate behavioral outcomes, and provide evidence-based mental health care and support to individuals and communities.
Experimental Psychology Program (Helen Sable, Director). Experimental psychology graduate training equips students with advanced training in research and analytical skills, preparing them to educate and mentor the next generation of psychology students and contribute to cutting-edge research and innovation in behavior and cognition.
School Psychology Program (Beth Meisinger, Director). School psychology graduate training empowers students with the knowledge and skills to provide essential mental health support, educational guidance, and psychological services in schools. This training positively impacts students by fostering their emotional well-being and academic success.
Master of Science in General Psychology Program (Gina Caucci, Director). The MSGP program is a 2-year research-intensive program culminating in a master’s thesis. It is designed for students who want experience and training in many areas of psychology (i.e., clinical, cognitive, BN, school) to enter the workforce at the masters level or pursue a PhD.
Psychological Services Center (Ryan Farmer, Director). The Psychological Services Center serves as a vital training ground for health service psychology students, allowing them to gain hands-on experience in delivering high-quality mental health services. This provides valuable practical training for students and offers the local community accessible, affordable, and evidence-based mental health services.
